November 20, 2020
Late Phases is a decent, occasionally interesting film, but in a crowded subgenre it sadly won't live long in the memory.

Probably the most impressive constituent are the lycanthropes themselves.
September 12, 2019
Retains interest mostly for how much it will remind you of the films its clearly derived from.

The inevitable showdown is a hoot, but overall, a throwaway experience that should have spent more time in development.

This bland take on werewolves has an excellent premise and a slow burn to its pacing that had a lot of promise, but unfortunately, it wrote a few checks the script couldn't cash.
November 2, 2018
While this is not my favorite werewolf movie, it was still well done. I appreciated the use of practical effects and it was a pretty unique storyline.
August 21, 2018
Its avoidance of dealing with the horror head-on leads to too much ambiguity.
September 1, 2017
As the film leads up to its bloody conclusion, there's a sense of peace that falls upon our hero, a reparation that he is unable to find at the local church or even with his son.
January 7, 2016
Without a doubt, Late Phases is one of the finest lycanthrope films of the last 20 years and a shining example of great independent horror.
August 23, 2015
Features some great performances, a worthwhile sense of strange humanity, and, ultimately, a handful of truly cool werewolf sequences.
November 22, 2014
Late Phases is a fun werewolf flick with a sweet, climactic last stand.
November 21, 2014
Damici gives his memorable protagonist enough life to hold it together more often than it would have otherwise. He's great here. The movie around him, not so much.
November 20, 2014
A sprightly horror movie about finding new purpose for old bones.
November 20, 2014
[Late Phases is] a sly, rueful rarity that plays its monster-movie tropes straight, but gives them a poignant little twist.
November 20, 2014
Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama.
November 19, 2014
Late Phases transforms from laughably non-frightening horror film to self-serious family drama and back again, all the while remaining ferociously, ravenously boring.
November 18, 2014
The narrative ends up working in a smaller scope than one might expect given the premise of a beast plaguing a community, but the journey getting to the finish is exhilarating all the same.
November 18, 2014
Adrin Garca Bogliano ends up merely toying with the death-steeped concerns of his characters, and taking the furious and bitter perspective that powers the narrative's ponderous dramatic core for granted.
November 17, 2014
Less ambitious but more satisfyingly resolved than Bogliano's last effort, Here Comes the Devil, Late Phases is a reminder of how much monster movies rely on what happens when the monster's not on screen.
September 25, 2014
There's always junk-food pleasure in seeing a questionably funky-looking werewolf take the business end of a silver-loaded shotgun to the face.
